Decent Compass, but Could Be Better As a heavy duty general purpose lensatic compass like the one I used in the Army, its great for shooting a magnetic line to a distant object using the sight wire.

Cammenga runs each batch of these through rigorous testing to conform with military specifications (including shock resistance and magnetic accuracy). The compass is identical to military issued models. The company who makes the compass, Cammenga, was started in 1992 to primarily manufacture the model 3H…
